    Review quote
    "Beautiful reproductions of superbly drawn Simon and Kirby works, resplendent, off-beat villains, a few nice plot twists and what amounts to an en-thralling time capsule of the America of the 1950s." - "Gannett - Montgomery Advisor" Praise for "The Simon and Kirby Superheroes" "A beautiful and expansive book that collects so much of [Jack] Kirby and Joe Simon's great efforts." -- "Washington Post" "As much a valuable historical artefact as it is a compilation of fantastic comic book classics. 10/10. An essential collection." -- "Total Sci-Fi Online" "A gorgeous volume..." -- "LA Times"
